Acid Reflux - ED

I been suffering from Acid Reflux most of 35 years. I' a 63 year old male. I've been on most of the prescribed acid blockers. Over the last 4 years I started having sex issues and recently realized a link to the blockers. I was able to painfully experiment and get off the medication to test it. The pain and misery was so over whelming I had to go back on it. But after 2 weeks the sex problems diminished. I have tried every home and natural health remedy out their with no success.I had my gallbladder taken out 2 years ago also. Is their any advice out their. I want to get off the medication but not kill myself doing it. Thanks Mike

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease? When I was very little I remember having gas problems with bad headaches, and I would lay with my head in the pillow and my butt up in the air and my grandmother would rub my back and I would belch a lot and find relief. During my early adult hood I would have the same accuracies and alka seltzer would help and anti-acids. I developed severe hemorrhoids and had to have surgery in early 20s after Viet Nam. Latter had one episode of gout in late 30s. Then surgery on the nose and throat for snoring then started having kidney stones about every other year. Gallbladder removed 2 years ago because they could not break the stones, started taking Reflux medications around 48. I was trying to get off them over the past 8 years on and off. This works for awhile then quits. I could write a book on all the things I’ve tried. I did have also a non cancer growth taken out of my throat about 13 years back which the doctors believe could have been to exposure to agent orange when in Viet Nam

6. Which time of the day you are worst?

Pantoprazole daily 40MG – I stopped it again 4 days ago for the 5th time in a year. I been sipping 1 teaspoon of organic apple cider vinegar in 4 ounces of water twice a day. When I eat I been taking one when I start one mid meal and one after of Rainbow light Advanced Enzyme System tablets. It helps with the burn so far. When I stop taking the Pantoprazole it seems my sex life improves as well as these enzyme tablets seem to help with the rumbling, belching and gas.

It is very likely that you are suffering from GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux disease) and I shall copy the therapy I have prescribed to hundreds of patients who presented GERD, the large majority of whom have been cured.

Your remedies are as follows:

Nat Phos 6x dose 3-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

You can expect relief from your ailment hopefully within 24 hours.
Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry.
It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.

No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

Please visit the links below which record the cases of other patients whom I have treated for GERD.




STOP using all other drugs and report progress in a week.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks Joe
I ordered as recommended from this web site. I'm new to Homeopathy I assumed you meant Arnica Montana Liquid and Natrium Phosphorus dosage as recommended. I read the 3 testimonies, they were encouraging and for the first time I have hope.I will keep you updated
God Bless
ductman last decade
To Mike

I prescribed:
Arnica Montana 30c Liquid Dilution in 87% Ethanol
Natrium Phosphericum 6x Biochemic Cell Salt Tablets

Please recheck your order and ensure that you get the above.

Do not lose hope as I am confident that after 35 years of suffering from GERD you can be hopefully returned to normal although you may have to take these remedies for the rest of your life in a reduced dosage. If the above do not help you within a week, I shall then prescribe others that will help you.

I believe that your present condition as described by you is due to the PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) acid blocking drugs like Nexium, Protonix, Zantac and others which have been recognized as doing more harm to the body when used in the long term, than good.

Google 'Tha danger of using PPI drugs' to read the damage that they cause to the brain

Hello Joe

It took awhile to get the recommended formulas. I been on exactly both as prescribed for 10 days now. Their is no doubt the Arnica is working. I know because I forgot 1 time and started feeling the burn and took it right then and noticed relief. I still get heartburn but not as severe and the worst time has changed from 3AM to 12:30AM I still immediately no matter how little I eat get bad belching and burping and passing gas.Even thou I'm experiencing the above I would say their has been a 70% improvement in the severity of the heart burn. The erectile problem still exists and now my suspicions are turning to my age instead of the Proton drug I was addicted to and now no longer take. Also at times during the day when I do get the burn a few ounces of water helps.Any further recommendations? Would going to 3 times a day on the Arnica be dangerous or help?
Thank you so much for the help so far which is like a miracle. I'm sold on Homeopathy and must have told at least 25 people about the site as well as Homeopathy.

'I been suffering from Acid Reflux most of 35 years. I' a 63 year old male. I've been on most of the prescribed acid blockers.'

You are doing fine in just about 2 weeks since you posted your problem withe GERD on January 13. Remember that you suffered for 35 years with your problem and I presume that you were taking PPI's all this time. The miracle is that you survived !

Let me prescribe another remedy which you will take in the Dry Pellets.

Lycopodium 200 dose 4 pellets taken sublingually twice daily for 2 days.

Report progress and do not take this remedy on a daily basis like you are taking the Nat Phos and Arnica.

You can also control your food at dinner and abstain from fatty food and especially red meat and dairy like ice cream which is difficult to digest.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks for the encouragement, I will order the new prescription immediately.
ductman last decade
Hello Joe
I'm still waiting on the Lycopodium 200 dose. Should be here in a few days. It seems the Arnica Montana 30c Liquid Dilution in 87% Ethanol
Natrium Phosphericum 6x Biochemic Cell Salt Tablets. Was having a positive effect and now with no diet change I'm on fire again. The belching has eased up a lot but the burn is now to the place where it is not coming up the esophagus like it used to but the fumes from my stomach are effecting my breathing. Instead of being bad at 3:30AM it is accvuring during the day and at about midnight at it's worst. I have not taken any reflux medicine but did take an alka seltzer. I did take the Arnica two extra times while being bothered and took the Nat Phos three times on two days instead of twice. It did seem like thier was a noticable improvement and that when I got a little burn just a sip of water cooled it down. Now water has no effect. Any furthur advice or just hang in their? Thanks Mike - Ductman
ductman last decade
Another thing when I took the Alka Seltzer I was belching and burping for a good 30 minutes. It seems one of these which I know is not good always gives me relief.
ductman last decade
To Mike

In your first post you indicated that you have been suffering from GERD for the last 35 years and reading your case history I was at first reluctant to take your case knowing as I did that I would be taking on a very difficult chronic case of classical GERD which I felt would be very difficult to help and eventually cure.

As you perhaps are aware I have also to face the taunts and criticism from 2 classical homeopaths on the ABC who are just waiting on the sidelines for the opportunity to prove that the 'Joepathy' I practice cannot help patients much less, cure them. In spite of this possibility I decided to try to help you as you are a senior citizen and I was aware that you could not have existed for long with the PPI drugs you were prescribed by your doctors. I was concerned to note that you too were aware that your days were numbered if you continued to use them -- 'I want to get off the medication but not kill myself doing it.'

You have used the Arnica and the Nat Phos for over 10 days and they have provided you some relief and they are both very safe to be used as you are doing today as long as you find that they help you. You have been able not to take the PPI drugs you were using and this is indeed a step in the correct direction.

You have not received the Lycopodium which is essential to help you and I shall await your report of your response after taking the Lycopodium as prescribed.

You can use the Alka Seltzer which we do not have in Sri Lanka where I live. I checked it out on Wikiperia and this is the description:

Alka-Seltzer Gold is a combination of sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, and anhydrous citric acid, used for the relief of heartburn, acid indigestion, and sour stomach. Unlike original blue Alka-Seltzer, Alka-Seltzer Gold does not contain aspirin, or any other pain reliever.

This seems safe to use to enable you to belch up the gas in your stomach but I do not know it there are any other chemicals in the non gold product. Please check and report.

Please remember that your case is chronic and you will have to be patient to enable the therapy I have prescribed to help you to replace the drugs that have poisoned you for the last 35 years.

Remember to eat small meals but more often even up to 6 per day as your stomach has to be slowly brought back to normal.

I would like you to have a Ultra sound scan done on your abdomen to check for Gall Stones. The scan will also show any signs of other problems that may be lurking inside after all that abuse from the drugs.
Joe De Livera last decade
You can also buy a remedy which is not really a Homeopathic remedy but a Functional medicine remedy (or in plain words a SUPLEMENT)

The Brand is Enzymatic Therapy

Name of the item is:

Heartburn Free! (active ingridient ROH-10)

Is is an oil from orange peel, studies have shown that it eliminates hearburn for 9 out of 10 people, and its affects last for 6 months and more.

The package comes with 10 gelcaps, you take 1 cap one every two days. 10 cap in 20 days total.

I am not quite sure how it works, i know it doesn't block the acid like PPI drugs, but something else.

I believe you can take it along Nat Phos and Arnica.

All gastric problems arise from the lack of Nat. Phos which is bodies alkaline balancer. You don't have to much acid, you have to little Nat. Phos in your cells.

Calc Phos is also found in a great amount in gastric juices as Biochemistry shows, and it is considered a tonic in all gastric/cattarh conditions.

Lack of Calc Phos is easy to spot, people who are lacking it usually have bad teeth, and tips of their teeth are translucent (brighter than lower portion of the teeth)

Nath Phos deficiency usually shows in a form on a ''red chin'' i.e. the skin on the chin is slightly red with or without slight red acne (no pus)
DoubleEdge last decade
Joe i have a question for you.

When should Arnica Wet Dose be taken?

I take it 2-3 times a day, but i am not sure when to take it because i have meals every 2.5-3 hours, and between meals i drink either water or teas (herbal or wild fruit)

I take one dose just before i go to bad, after brushing my teeth, as for other two doses i am not sure?

How long after/before a meal should arnica be taken?
DoubleEdge last decade
To Theeya

Thank you for your input on this thread but I would prefer that Mike does not take 'Heartburn Free' for the moment as I do not have any statistics about it and I fear that it may antidote the therapy I have prescribed.

The problem with Homeopathic remedies is that the concentration of the original remedy is so very low that even I do wonder how any remedy can possibly work. For instanct in a 6x potency the presence of the Sodium Phosphate (Nat Phos) is just 1 Millionth of the salt. Arnica 30c cannot be defined in its dilution which is at Nano levels but it works and after taking it myself nightly since 1996, I believe that I have proved that it has kept me at my present state of wellness that many envy, without any ache or pain in my body which is now 82 years of age.

I note that you have given some information on Nat Phos and you may be interested to read the note of Dr Scheussler who first discovered this remedy with 11 other 'Biochemic Cell Salts'

Natrium Phosphoricum

Sodium and Phosphate ions are to be found in our body in the muscle, nerve and brain cells, in the blood corpuscles and in the tissue fluids. According to Dr Schuessler, Nat Phos splits the lactic acid, which is produced by the work of muscles into carbonic acid and water. The carbonic acid is absorbed by the sodium phosphate and brought to the lungs where it is eliminated in the process of breathing. If sodium phosphate is lacking, there results an excess of lactic acid and consequently a sour taste, heart burn, sour stools, vomiting of sour, caseous matter, particularly in babies who are overfed with sugar and milk. If lactic acid reaches the lymphatic glands, the albumin of the lymph glands coagulates and the gland begins to swell. In the initial stages of swelling of the lymphatic glands therefore, Nat Phos has a healing effect because it can split lactic acid. Nat Phos further assures that the uric acid of the blood which is formed by the splitting up of the albuminous substance is kept in solution and secreted by the kidneys. Should this not be the case, uric acid will be deposited in the joints. The sequels are Rheumatism. Gout, Sciatica, Lumbago. In the Gall, Nat Phos saponifies the fatty acids which have been consumed with the food. It is hence indicated against digestive disturbances resulting from excessive consumption of fat.

Answering your question:

I note that you are taking Arnica in the Wet dose 3 times daily. This dosage can be considered as an overdose in the long term and I would prefer that you use it only nightly if you with to take it for a long period. Twice daily can be considered safe for a month or two but I would not recommend it for any longer period. Any Homeo remedy is best taken about an hour before a meal.

I take a dose nightly before bed after brushing my teeth and rinsing my mouth at least 4 times to ensure that all traces of toothpaste are washed away. I gargle with the capful to enable the liquid to be picked up by the nerve endings in my tongue and cheek and throat. You can use more than a capful if you so wish as even a CUP fulll is still equivalent to the CAP full which is a dose.

I know that this may sound very strange to you but this is Homeopathy for you.

A question for you:

For how long have you taken the Arnica and what made you start on it ?
Joe De Livera last decade
I just started taking Arnica yesterday. My general plan was taking it for the first month 3 times a day, second month 2 times a day and after that if everything is well just before bed as a tonic.

I started using it because of certain acid issues (bad taste in the mouth when i wake up, belching after meals/drinks, feeling of acid in throat from time to time, and chronic inflamation of back of my throat and nose (with no pain) due to acid.

Since this problem of mine is lasting for about 6 years or so i wanted to give chance to these remedies at least 6 months before i start believing they don't work. It is said in Traditioan Chinese Medicine that for every year of altered state of the body, a month is needed to restore balance.

I am a true believer in Homopathy, i have read Scheussler's book, i also read The Biochemic System of Medicine by George W. Carey, and also the Facial Diagnosis of Cell Salt Deficienties guide (Including materia medica) by David R. Card.

It says that Cell Salts do not interfere with other remedies, since they are an essencial part of the body, but i am also not sure about mixing it with suplements.

It is my personal opinion that Cell Salts are of a great value to everyone and that the sole reason for lack of success from it is because not looking at a greater picture.

What i mean by that is the systematic route of the body. Let's say a person is under stress, because of this the body is depleting Kali Phos reserves more than it should, when Kali Phos lacks body turns to Mag. Phos. than after time Mag Phos also lacks so the body takes Calc Phos, after Cals Phos is gone Nat Phos also becomes deficient.

Now whene digestion is impaired all other salts after time get deficient, and all this is a kaskade caused by to much stress (which is well known to affect digestion)

I doubt that a person can have just one deficiency after being in an altered state for 35 years, maybe a call for more than one cell salt is in order.

For example in the book it clearly states that Calc Phos is found 57 % in the bones and teeth, and ALSO a large quantity in the GASTRIC JUICES. This is from the book

''Calcium phosphate is found in gastric juice, and a lack of the proper balance is frequently the cause of indigestion. Condition called rheumatism are sometimes due to a deficiency of this cell salts. It is well known to Biochemist that a proper balance of sodium phosphate is required to prevent and acid condition from prevailing, and under certain conditions, when calcium phosphate for any reason is not present in proper quantities , the affinities draw upon sodium phosphate in an endeavor to supply the lack, and thus a deficiency in the alkaline salt ensue, which allows an acid condition to prevail.

So Nat Phos deficiency comes after DEPLETION of Calc Phos. Calc Phos deficiency because lack of Mag Phos, and Mag phos deficienty from lack of Kali Phos.

I do believe in lighter cases Nat Phos alone can make all the difference, which you have PROVEN many times now, but in those cases where Nat Phos alone doesn't help maybe patients should also look at the top of the kaskade. Calc. Phos-Mag Phos-Kali Phos.

Biochemistry states that in every condition there should be one CHIEF REMEDY, but many organs/cells have more than one cell salts, and thus HELPING REMEDIES are in order.

That is why for example if there is a clear sign of Mag Phos deficiency (leg cramps at night) and Mag Phos alone doesn't help in normal amount of time ONE SHOULD also use Calc. Phos. along in order to replenish the bodies need for Calcium.
DoubleEdge last decade
Thanks again for the encouragement. I will stick with the Arnica Montana 30c Liquid Dilution in 87% Ethanol twice a day
Natrium Phosphericum 6x Biochemic Cell Salt Tablets
4 tablets immediately after eating as originally instructed and do as prescribed with the
Lycopodium 200 dose 4 pellets taken sublingually twice daily for 2 days when it arrives.

Just for your information I read in this thread about
The Brand Enzymatic Therapy, It didn't work for me but using Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. Must take 1 teaspoon in 4 OZ water and very important must slow sip do not drink over an hour time, gives relief but not cure also can get Reeds Crystallized Ginger Candy sweetened with raw cane sugar. Eat a piece when get the burn it puts the fire out for a while.Chewing gum helps for temporary relief from the burn. And as far as enzyme's The ones that helped not cured my condition were Rainbow Light, Advance Enzyme System. After a few bites take one, mid meal take one, just when about to finish meal take one. Helps a lot but not a cure. After trying 100's of different things like this. What you have been directing me at has been working 1000 times better.
Thanks Again Mike Ductman

The Lycopodium 200 dose came in and I finished as directed yesterday. Just wanted to let you know.

I presume that you continue with the Nat Phos/Arnica therapy.

Please confirm.
Joe De Livera last decade
Hi Joe
Yes as you instructed the
Nat, 4 after each meal and the Arnica 1 teaspoon in the morning when I rise and 1 before I go to bed.

Found a few more safe things to munch when get a little burn, like sip of water,a few soda cracker's and it seems a Mango Lassi, a little sip of ginger ale soda with no sugar warm and flat as well as a piece of cucumber sometimes helps. All is well. Praise God no medication and going strong.

Bless you Joe
ductman last decade
Glad to learn that you are on the road to recovery. It is unlikely however that you will ever be cured as I believe that your constitution after 35 years of gastric abuse cannot ever be cured. However I believe that we have achieved the impossible and you have been blessed with a reasonable state of health with my Joepathy and you do not have to depend on the dangerous PPI drug that you have been using to digest the next meal anymore.

You reported that you had a cholecystectomy some years ago and you must know that this was totally unnecessary as if you only had used my therapy for GERD, you would not have had any need to remove it. Your surgeons would have been delighted to relieve you of this vital organ in your body which produces the extra gastric juice Gall, which is essential to help digest fats which I I presume you are now compelled to avoid.

You may like to know that statistically over Half a Million patients in the USA have their Gallbladders removed so very unnecessarily every year and they provide a constant source of revenue to keep their surgeons happy. I understand that surgery costs over $15000 and you can figure out how much money and unnecessary suffering the general public can save themselves from, if only they use my Joepathy in time for GERD, which is the root cause of all gastric distress.

I note that you eat a snack to keep your hunger pains at bay but I would prefer that you do not eat Cucumber as it contains some chemical element which does not digest easily and can cause more GERD.

Feel free to report progress from time to time here on the ABC.
Joe De Livera last decade
It was the gallbladder removal that was a wake up call. by the way total bill paid by my then hospitalization was $26,000.00 I was rushed to emergency room and given tests and advised that it must be removed immediately or the risks were life threatening.Up to then I had been focused on reliving myself of drugs by alternative natural foods, vitamin and enzyme sources, which I said earlier was a aid but only worked temporary. I really never heard of Homeopathy till a friend of mine in Arizona was cured of her sinus problems. That was September last year. In a nearby community their is a Homeopathy practitioner but due to complications in my life as well as her scheduled demands I was unable to get an appointment. It was then in January after trying to get an appointment I decided to look for another and I bumped into the ABC site and went on the forum pleading for some help. And as you mentioned earlier you were reluctant knowing I was a tough case but moved by your compassion as a healer you responded to the call. If I have to take the Nat and Arnica for the rest of my life as well as a few little things this is a small price to pay for such a great reward. I have given testimony to many of Joe the Healer from Sir Lanka. I assume your instructions are continue with the Nat and Arnica in dose and frequency as prescribed and report progress time to time. Joe I owe you, call on me anytime. I'm here. In Gratitude Mike Ductman
ductman last decade
Hi Joe
Wanted to let you know whats going on, it's been awhile. I have been still taking the 4 Nat Phos after each meal which is usually twice a day. Occasionally I take the Arnica. I actually sleep through the night with no burn and occasionally I get the burn but a sip of water or chewing some gum and it is gone. Still a lot of gas but not hard to live with. Every day I thank God for the miracle to eat food with out fear. Again Thank you Joe.
ductman last decade
I was looking through the archives on my website where I had copied your own case and am sending this post to you in the hope that you will read it after about a year since I treated you with my default remedies Nat Phos 6x and Arnica 30.

I would like to know how you are and if you have any problems with GERD today.
